Air-Pot® from seed
The unique design of the Air-Pot container transforms the quality of plants right from germination
To get the best from your plants it is essential that they develop good roots right from germination.
The increased aeration of the compost in the Air-Pot propagation tray means more even germination right across the tray and air pruning leads to the development of healthy fibrous roots, with no deformities.
The tray has two uncut cones at the top of the wall to form the water reservoir.
